Devils Tower is a geologic mystery. Although the main ideas are understood, there is still debate surrounding exactly how the Tower formed. People commonly ask, “Is it a volcano?” The simple answer is NO.
The Tower is 867 feet tall from its base.
It is the world’s first national monument, dedicated September 24, 1906 by Theodore Roosevelt.
There are 4000-5000 climbs of the Tower every year.
Prairie dogs are burrowing squirrels that live in large colonies called towns in the valley below the tower.
